Dan Rather compares Republicans to “rats” then says “that’s really not fair to rats”

In a provocative tweet, newsman Dan Rather compares Republican elected officials to “rats” and then says “that’s really not fair to rats.”

“It’s tempting to use the analogy of rats fleeing a sinking ship to describe the growing number of Republican elected officials starting to speak out against Donald Trump,” rather says.

But that’s really not fair to rats,” Rather continues “who tend not to be complicit in driving ships to the bottom of the sea.”

One Twitter user replied “I remember when you weren’t in the tank for anyone.”

Then asked “Or did we just not know?”

When he’s not comparing Republicans unfavorably to “rats” Dan Rather is perhaps ironically promoting his book he wrote called “What Unites Us.”

We’ll leave it for you to decide if comparing Republican officials as worse than rats is “unifying” for the country.
